Enjoy your holidays ! Fijne vakantiel !

The summer season is starting. And even if the air is not as warm as we would like, the sun, between clouds, is there. Having trimmed lime trees last fall allowed it to heat the roof of the swimming pool and thus have the water at 29°C this afternoon. As for lime trees, they are growing again.

Lime trees are growing up again and allows to heat the water of the swimming pool

Summer is also the season of honeysuckle, geraniums… And our deutzia and mock orange are still in flower.

It is the summer
Our mock orange is still in flower
Géraniums are in flower

And then summer allows the new 2024 exterior features to be highlighted: a massif of sage and lavender, a new terrace facing the forest and fields.

To take advantage of all these colors and fragrance, don’t forget: La Demeure d’Othe.

Moreover, this morning at breakfast a customer asked me: what is the country of Othe ? It is a region between Sens and Troyes (between the A5 and the N77): very hilly forests, apples, cider, cheese, and close to Chablis and the Cote des Bar (champagne! ).

Ginette & Eva : 1st bathers of the season.

Water at 25°C, then Ginette et Eva had fun on May 1st and Eva was able to show off her swimming skills. This swim was well deserved after a 10 km forest hike and the visit to Troyes.

Our firsts bathers 2024 (May the 1st)

On May the 2nd they went back to Netherlands to return to classes and work.

Very happy to have welcomed you. Thanks.

La Demeure d’Othe and  Europe of payments

Beyond the payment offers from smartphone manufacturers and banks (online or not), several online payment offers co-exist in Europe.

The development of these offers is generally linked to a country:

  • If you are Dutch, Ideal is the ideal solution
  • If you are German, Giropay or Sofort (Dach zone in major) depending on your bank account
  • If you are Belgian, Bancontact is the most used solution

So when your business leads you to sell online to European customers, it is better to be open-minded and hope that the Europe of payments will happen soon.

In the meantime, La Demeure d’Othe allows greater proximity to its European customers by also offering payment via Ideal, Bancontact and Giropay.
